This generation of youth are media savvy. Moreover, they are connected in narrative through film and television. Have you ever seen a film and wondered what the meaning was within? Why is it that so many from the Hip Hop Generation love films such as Scarface, Hostel, and Silent Hill? Is there any “Jesus” in Hollywood? This session explores basic film theory concepts, the meaning behind popular films, and it will challenge you to go deeper with Christ within films with your students. Become skilled at really seeing a film while understanding the re-mythologizing of our society through watching the story-telling in film.
